    I find it difficult to study for essay based subjects, sociology in this case, never knowing whether I'm writing too many notes or too little.
    I was planning on simply making essay plans for past paper questions and a few side notes on important points.

    However, I am interested in effective revision methods used by others?

    I may be stating the obvious but the best way to revise I know of is just going over and reading your notes. If this is not for you then you could produce revision posters to hang on the walls of your home that have key bits of information that you want to remember or maybe flash cards to test yourself. Don't worry about your notes too much, your teachers should tell you everything you need to know and if they don't, there are revision guides available on the internet with everything in.

    Thank you! Revision posters sounds like a great idea - one I will definitely take up! Flash cards would be good for memorising studies and sociologists.
    I guess I'm a bit worried since I'm self-studying sociology this year and I'm just hoping that how I'm studying is right :s

    Hey,

    It depends on how you like to learn tbh. I have a friend who bombards his walls with brainstorms and all sorts. To me all of that just looks like a mad man's bedroom. So for me, flash cards work the best. After learning a topic, I also plan answers for past exam questions like you but I also answer them in timed conditions once planned. It's a great exercise for exam techniques!
